numbers from filling automatically? I'm using the spreadsheet program
and no matter what format I use when I try to type just 3, as an example,
it shows 30 and I have to delete the extra number to move onto the next column.

Are you saying you enter the number three and you actually get 30. or do you mean you get 3.0 (note the decimal point)?

This might happen if you have Tools - Cell content - Autoinput enabled. That option makes input suggest text values from above. IOW, if you have 30 entered as a text value, then enter the number 3 in a cell below (in the same column), Calc will suggest 30.

AFAIK, this is independent of the format of the cell you enter into, but the suggestion is dependent on the data type of the source data (only makes suggestions from previous cells containing text data).

For speed entry of similar values, the autoinput may be useful, but I mostly find it an annoying feature. (Annoying mostly because it's enabled by default, and seems to revert to that default on its own accord.)
